The August 30 bicycle rodeo will include a bike obstacle course and "drag racing" strip for kids to test their skills, compete, and win prizes; plus participants will learn about bike safety, and have their bikes checked by a mechanic to help students keep their bikes tuned up and ready for local roads and trails.
Deputy Anderson says the emphasis will be on creating a fun community event, but that kids will learn some of the essentials of bicycle safety. "I am excited to see kids and community members get involved in this event for kids with our local community organizations," he said. "It's important that the community comes together like this from time to time, to meet and interact, and keeping kids safe and healthy is one of the most important things we can do."
The event runs from 10:00 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Gobles High School Parking Lot. Journey Family Church will provide hot dogs and juice box to participants.
